Doncaster v Derby
Live on Sky Sports One
Donny have been dragged back into the relegation fight following three successive defeats, having looked as though they might haul themselves away from it at one stage last month.
They have lost their last two at home (Bolton and Birmingham) having won three on the spin at The Keepmoat Stadium before that (Sheffield Weds, Watford and Huddersfield). Rovers posses the best home record of the sides scrapping at the wrong end of the table and, given they have the fewest away wins in the division, will be relying on picking up enough points at home to ensure survival.
Paul Dickov felt his side were hard done by in last Saturday's defeat at play-off chasing Ipswich where they showed good character to get back into the game after going a goal behind before succumbing to a late goal.
Steve McLaren's men are virtually guaranteed a play-off spot and might already have confirmed their place before kick-off here depending on results in the 3pm fixtures. With second-placed Burnley out of reach barring a miracle their aim will be to keep recent momentum going and go into the play-offs in good form.
It's noticeable that their recent form away from home hasn't been too hot - just one win in the last five and that came at hapless Blackpool. Goals haven't been an issue, though. The Rams have netted three against each of Huddesfield, Blackpool and Charlton in the last month, teams around Doncaster's level.
Derby have now scored 75 times in the Championshpi this season - a figure bettered only by champions-elect Leicester - and they boast multiple attacking threats in the likes of Chris Martin, Patrick Bamford and goal scoring midfielder Craig Bryson.
The visitors are odds-on which is always worth opposing in a division where any side can beat another on a given day. And having highlighted Doncaster's relatively reasonable home record and the vulnerabilities of Steve Mclaren's men on the road, it's no surprise that I'm going to advise a lay of the Rams at 1.910/11. That price is just a bit too short for me and I expect the home side to come out all guns blazing here.
Both Teams to Score
Both Teams to Score would have landed in each of Doncaster's last four games and they have netted in their last six matches at home. Given the visitors are the division' top scorers and have banged in three in three of their last four fixtures, the 1.84/5 for both teams to score seems a very good price and one I'm keen to take.
